a number of commentaries for many years for both cbs and then for npr and i had to write these sure things. they had to be pretty punchy. so my riding style is kind of a lawyer's analytical writing, an awful lot of writing that is not legal, and writing an awful lot of stuff that had to be punchy. that is stirred into the pot. >> during this time, you said there were two 0.1 million -- i don't know what they were called then, but the colonists in those days in this country? >> there would have been 2.1 million whites. it is very imprecise because they had official censuses in a few colonies. >> where were the population centers? >> the population centers, the biggest populations were pennsylvania and virginia. massachusetts had a good size population. west virginia was growing by leaps and bounds as people went south through pennsylvania and virginia to the western part of north carolina. a lot of the colonies were very small. so they had no real impact in bringing a revolution about. new hampshire and rhode island to a certain extent. new jersey and georgia was very small in population. w

[video clip] >> he was a proud democrat and a proud american. were it not for those insights planted in my head at the age of 11 in between is the land and a trip to yellowstone -- between disneyland -- i'm not have considered a career in public service and might not be standing here today. i think it's fair to say that daniel inouye was perhaps my earliest political inspiration. ost: senator daniel in a ouye passed away earlier this year. we're looking at your political hero of 2012. mitch is from tennessee on the democrat's line. caller: i just want to say that my political hero had to be bernie sanders. he started talking about not paying taxes on the high end. i say bernie sanders got it right. ask anybody about the rich paying taxes. that's the problem right there. we need to take our fight to the top like it is supposed
